Jessica and I have been going back and forth on what to do and not do after a friend’s break-up. We discuss! And we figured out how to be a good friend, so if you were wondering about that, we’ve got you covered.
Jen: Okay, so how much sympathy should you expect from friends after difficult situations?
Jessica: Well, first let’s clarify “difficult situations.” You have your sort of benign, like not getting a call back after a first-third date. Then you have your traumatic, like a death. Then you have your somewhere in between, like a break-up of a long-term relationship.
